    New to this forum as a poster, I have read a lot. I'm carrying my first 1911 in years today, and I can't believe I've spent so much time messing with plastic stuff. Gun is a new production Loaded stainless, carrying in a borrowed OWB pancake style holster. I can't believe how comfortable it...
  2. 1911 Carry
    Hey guys, I watch a lot of Vickers Tactical channel and he is big proponent of aluminum 1911’s for carry despite the fact that it won’t shoot quite as soft. If your experience, does the aluminum frame make that much of a difference in comfort to justify the increase in recoil? Or is it not as...

    Hey guys, as someone who has carried Glocks, Sigs, and HK’s for years (in the compact size), what are your thoughts on carrying a full size 1911? I currently EDC a Glock 17. I am 5’10”, 200 lbs. Athletic, muscular build. Thanks!

    Folks, hope all is great! Does anyone prefer a shoulder holster for CCW. I've seen a few custom leather holster makers out there and they look amazing. I have never tried one. Are they as concealable as IWB, less...or...more...are they comfortable...? Etc...anyone use both and if so what do...
  5. 1911 Carry
    So as y’all know down here in SW Louisiana the humidity and heat gets ridiculous. I’m about 6’4” 285lbs, and I’ve always had an issue finding a holster I liked so I could carry my 1911 or whatever. Right now since it’s hot I’ve been carrying a J frame in a small holster, or even in pocket. I...

    I recently picked up my first set of VZ G10 grips (It looks like VZ is phasing out officer size grips and has almost all of them marked down to $35, so get on that if you've been waiting). My old half-checkered stocks didn't give me any traction in the area where my support hand grips the gun...

    I was skimming through some of the local police blotters and noticed that a guy was recently arrested for carrying a firearm. Naturally, it perked my curiosity as I too carry a firearm. In short, a guy was out for a walk with his wife and two dogs. He had a license to carry but it had recently...

    Hello everyone, sorry for another weird question, as I asked a few other weird ones earlier this month. I recently got a Glock 21 (45acp) and I am considering getting my permit to carry, and I am wondering if 1911s and glocks can handle the hollow point defensive ammo I plan on using? I've...
